    The kit I got from crutchfield is nice. It can be used as a DD and single.

    I'm not sure of the brand. They included it when I bought my head unit. I can post pics if you like, but mine is black not silver. It's good quality IMO, though. Never had a problem with it.

    I don't have a pic but my "Metra silver, textured" looks pretty much like an OEM part in my truck. I've only had it in for about a month so I don't really know of it's durability. The color pretty well matches spot-on.

    buy the scosche kit... It uses the factory brackets for the radio and that alone makes it worth the money.

    This is my Metra kit. I am not really happy with it but Metra is the only DD kit to come in black.

    Mine is black, not sure if it's a Metra, though. How come you don't like it?

    If you had to use the stock radio mounting bracket it is a Metra kit.

    I could not get the flush fit I wanted in the top right hand corner. I came close but I had to super glue the trim ring to the actual DD faceplate.

    I had a single din Scoche kit and it fit like a glove.

    i have a KenwoodDDX418. i just installed it a few weeks ago. I got the unit from amazon with the NAV and Blue tooth. I ordered the double din from crutchfield and i used the factory mounting brackets. I also set up the factory camera to the unit. great unit fit great, i would def buy it again.

    I went with Metra silver. I modified the factory brackets drilled new hole in them so the unit would sit deeper (for my Kenwood) Had to f$ck around with it a bit, and the finish is ok (kinda boring looking) i wish it had that smooth trim around the clock like our stockers. im kind picky i guess, the wife thinks it looks great, but hey what the hell does she know....she picked me! Here is how it looks now, i might still fool with it later. Cheers and thanks for all the input guys.

    Has anyone thought about putting the 2012 "Display Audio with Nav" head unit in there 05-11? I want to do this. I guess I would need to check with the stealership to see how much they want.
